    Reconciliation by A. Lawrence Chickering and James S. Turner March 6, 1857, Roger B. Taney, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, wrote the 7-2 Dred Scott opinion finding that “a negro, whose ancestors were imported into [the U.S.], and sold as slaves,” whether enslaved or free, could not be an American citizen. On March 6, 2017, the 160th anniversary of that infamous decision—the worst in court history, historians say—Justice Taney’s descendant, Charles Taney of Greenwich, Connecticut, apologized to Dred Scott’s great-great-granddaughter under the gaze of a Roger Taney statue installed on the Maryland State House grounds in 1872. ...

    Make no mistake: We are a country under attack. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. It’s easy. Just tell them they are under attack. Hermann Goering, Minister of the Third Reich under Adolf Hitler If the Department of Homeland Security is defending the homeland, who is defending us?   Whether or not our country is actually under attack, our capacity to reason certainly is.

  • Updates From the Movement
    As an independent, I've become increasingly convinced that those of us who are most discouraged by our options in the voting booth ought most especially to vote, if we're to have any chance of interrupting the vicious cycle of the most polarized electorate putting the most polarized candidates in office. In the 2016 election cycle, among a deeply flawed set of presidential candidates on both sides, I eventually settled on one I could vote for in reasonably good conscience: Ohio governor John Kasich.
